“Il Porcellino” (Italian “piglet”) is the local Florentine nickname for the bronze fountain of a boar on South Main Street. The plaque on the front reads:
The original bronze wild boar, “Il Porcellino” was placed in the Mercato Nuovo in Florence, Italy by Pietro Tacca in 1612.
Legend has it that if you place a coin in the boar’s mouth and it falls into the grate below, your wish will be granted.
Also, rubbing his nose will bring good luck and guarantee a return trip to “Il Porcellino”
